Our newly manufactured bags are fully compostable in just 10 days.  The practical, starch-based material is strong yet effective.  Once discarded our bags simply return to nature.  They are also significantly stronger than similar bags on the market and are less likely to rip and fall apart during use.

Hygienic, compostable and good for the environment

According to the Food Standards Agency, up to 5.5 million people in the UK are affected by food poisoning each year.  We believe that by using our kitchen waste bags for food waste recycling we can prevent this number increasing.

Here in the UK we deposit more household waste into landfill than any other EU country. Much of this waste is kitchen food waste which is fully degradable. Our kitchen waste bags are made from a fully compostable material that will provide an easy and safe way of handling this food waste. It can then be left for the weekly curb side food waste collections provided by your local County Council, or simply put straight into your compost heap.

This new material uses biopolymers, consisting mainly of potato or corn starch, both of which are fully sustainable materials. It has been certified as being fully biodegradable and compostable according to the European norm EN13432, which was set up to regulate products to be disposed of in composting sites, ensuring that the resulting compost is commercially acceptable. Our new bags are fully compostable in just 10 days and so are an entirely environmental alternative to bags provided which may be provided by your County Council.

The practical, starch-based material is strong yet effective during use, and are fully compostable, so in the right environment they are gone in just 10 days. This material is designed to break down in a composting environment by natural means into simple elements; carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. There is no need for the bag to be recycled, and no need for it to take up space in landfill sites. We say “fill the bag, not the planet”. Our bags are designed to break down naturally and will fully biodegrade in compost, soil, fresh or salt water. Biodegradation takes place as soon as micro-organisms are present, and the process is further accelerated when the temperature is increased – perfect for compost sites or landfill.

Instead of creating a visible litter trail, once discarded our bags simply return to nature. They are also significantly stronger than other similar bags on the market and are less likely to rip and fall apart during use.
